The 20th Man Fund Charity
Farnham and Monique Brumby join Daniela for a Cause
SUNSHINE singer-songwriter Daniela Corso has enlisted the aid of some big names in the music industry to help the work veteran youth worker Les Twentyman does in the West.
Rob Farnham (son of Australian icon John) and dual ARIA award-winner Monique Brumby will join Corso for a night of live music at the Williamstown RSL on Friday, August 10. They aim to raise money for the 20th Man Fund, which helps struggling families and youths at risk.
The acoustic concert already has support from the Way Out West blues and roots music club, which regularly attracts leading Australian and overseas acts to the popular RSL.
“It's an honour to be sharing the stage alongside two great Australian talents and raising money for a cause that helps so many disadvantaged youths and families in the western suburbs,” Corso said.
The local artist, who grew up in Albion, will be accompanied by guitarist George Chris, performing many of the songs they have written together.
Rob Farnham, who began playing in bands as a 17-year-old, is following in his famous dad's footsteps as he pursues a solo career. He said his dad has backed him all the way.
“He is my hero, he is my dad and my singing idol. To have his support means a lot to me,”
Farnham will perform songs from an EP he has recorded in the United States and Melbourne.
Monique Brumby has established herself as one of Australia's premier recording artists and songwriters, winning two ARIA awards and recording five albums. She has toured Australia and the U.S. with The Bangles, Jeff Buckley and The Stranglers, and Don McLean. She has written songs with Paul Kelly and Rob Hirst of Midnight Oil. She will be a big drawcard at the Williamstown fundraiser.
Monique Brumby and Daniela Corso recently shared the stage at Federation Square to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness.
ENTRY will be $15 for the big night of live music at Williamstown RSL.
